Tess's registered name is Dancing Star's You Are My Sunshine. It has absolutely nothing to do with her call name. We actually had her call name picked out first before we knew what the litter theme would be or if we'd even have the opportunity to pick her registered name.
Well, we were able to choose her registered name, but we had to keep with the theme of song titles with sun, moon, or stars in them. We chose "You Are My Sunshine" because it was one of those childhood memories that really stuck out for both of us...our parents singing that song to us as kids. We had it played during the portion of our wedding ceremony when we handed out flowers to our parents. And so, without hesitation, when Tess' breeder told us the litter's theme, I just blurted it out without even consulting the husband. I was so sure someone had already taken it, but no...it was ours! It's such an appropriate name for her, she really IS our sunshine!
